Having Babies Make Your Hair Curl?

When I was little, I always wanted curly hair. I totally blame the 80's perm craze. I've always had the thickest hair on the planet...so attempts to curl or perm it were usually disastrous. It would either come out too curly or not curly enough. I actually remember PRAYING to God, asking to have curly hair. Seriously!
As I got older, the whole curly hair thing wasn't as important...the straightening iron became cool and I was proud of the fact that I could easily straighten my (already straight) hair. I still wished for curly hair sometimes though...I had a friend in college with gorgeous curly hair...all she had to do was step out of the shower and throw some product in her hair and she looked like she had just stepped out of the salon! Not fair, God.
After I had Lorelai, I began to have trouble with my hair. It started in the back of my head and started to spread. I couldnt get it to lay flat and it was getting more pouffy by the day.
My hair is now curly! I kid you not!
Something about being pregnant totally changed my hair. I can now step out of the shower, throw some product in, and it's wavy.
It's weird how things work out sometimes!

Maybe with the next pregnancy your waves will turn to the PERFECT curl! You should try it:)

I hated my curly hair when I was a child. When I got older, I grew it and it looked lovely for a while - especially in the 'big hair 80s'. Then I became a mom and it went all frizzy. Gah. Now it's short and thick and I can't do a thing with it!
